BIO 192 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

AVOID HER CLASS IF POSSIBLE. She designed the lab practicals (hammered at 9 am) that over 3/4 of all the classes got below a 70. Unstable, if she is in a good mood she is helpful if you ask direct question. If she is in a bad mood run away! She is not above saying she hates certain students. DO NOT TALK while she is!

BIO-191L 192L Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Carson is a great lab professor. She's difficult, but she pushes you to succeed... If you do the work. Which isn't a lot. If not, she doesn't care if you fail. She hates lazy freshmen, and I get that. Just take responsibility. She is extremely clear with what she wants. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Just read the assignments on Blackboard.

Carson's alright. She has a lot of dry humor, so prepare yourself. I wouldn't say the class is easy unless you really prepare yourself. The class is pretty straightforward. Study her powerpoints and you'll be fine. She's pretty blunt, so don't try to kiss up.

Bio192L Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Worst Proffesor ever! Her expectations are completely unclear. You never know how your doing because she never hands anything back. Doesn't prepare you for either practical. Average grade for both was around a 20/50. She likes to complain about other students behind their backs. Very absent minded, but this can be funny at times.Don't take her!

BioL192 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Scariest professor at Le Moyne. She digs right into the material and makes you feel as though you are an incompetent human being without a brain. Thus, if you want to feel stupid 24/7 and hate your life for a semester, take her.

BIO192 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

It's as simple as this: She pick favorites. If she likes you, then the class is easy and you will get an A with minimal effort. If she doesn't then run away from the class and never look back. She gets away with this by giving opinionated questions and with partial credit. Has little faith in her own student though, which is annoying.

Crazy at times, but gives you everything you need to know for write-ups. Difficult to approach for fear of losing one's head, but has a dry humour. Pulled a 45/50 on lab practical because of her.

Bio201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Horrible Professor! Does not respond to emails and tests are almost impossible. Two thirds of the class had a grade of C or below AFTER the insane curve she uses. Would not recommend taking any classes with her!

BIO201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Crazy (constantly says "I don't care" while going over material), scatterbrained, tests are nearly impossible...does curve A LOT because she likes her classes to have a 75% average, so getting a C is possible. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND IF YOU CAN AVOID.

I have her for BIO lab and I dont know what you people are talking about. She is crazy and all over the place! She seems sorta nice but more sarcastic. I've done well on grades so far but she seems to take points off for no reason just because she doesnt want to give a perfect score and back up her reasoning. I would take someone else!

Prof Carson is amusing in class, tests are straightforward, and overall a worthwhile course since you have to take a natural science anyway. I would take her again if i needed another science class

The best professor i've had here to date. Covers everything that will be on the test. Very easy grader, and curves. got an A with minimun effort. Has a sense of humor and understands that you have a life and may miss class occasionally. Highly recommended

her tests are very hard. she designs them so u dont do good. She does have a weird curve tho. If you want a high B or an A a lot of effort is needed, but it isn't impossible.
